Nomination of Board directors
Three director positions on the Australasian Sleep Association Board become vacant at the Annual General Meeting – the positions currently held by Jennifer Walsh, Ching Li Chai-Coetzer and Denise O’Driscoll. Jennifer Walsh and Denise O’Driscoll have each informed the Board that they intend to nominate for re-election.

Each elected Board director holds a Committee Chair position which is decided by the Board. Each position is for the Board rather than for a specific Committee Chair position. More information about committees

Board directors are expected to serve a minimum two-year term with an option to offer themselves for re-election to a maximum term of six years.

Board directors must be able to commit to attend 75% of Board meetings held in each membership year (from 1 July to 30 June). Any person who holds a position on the Board is required to complete a Declaration of Interests. These will be circulated to all members of the Board, relevant committees and may be made available to ASA members on request.

In the event of more nominations being received than positions vacant, an election will be held at the Annual General Meeting, and positions will be determined on the number of votes cast by eligible voting members.

If you would like to nominate someone for one of these director roles, please complete and return the nomination form. Both nominees and those nominating them must be current financial members with full voting rights – only Full Members and Emeritus Members can stand, nominate or second. 

Please send nominations to Marcia Balzer, CEO, by email to by 12 noon on Monday 20 September 2021

You can also contact Marcia if you have any questions about the process of nominating or the role of Board directors.
